The Libyan embassy in Madrid agreed on Monday with the competent authorities in Spain, to continue exporting livestock from Spanish ports to Libyan ports directly and under the supervision of the competent authorities.

The embassy explained on its Facebook page that this agreement came during an extended meeting held in Madrid and in cooperation with the National Center for Animal Health in Tripoli, adding that the agreements were concluded with precise protocols that included facilitating procedures and safety of exports.

It also added that this step will contribute to reducing the prices of livestock and meat for citizens in Libya, as this agreement will meet the needs of the Libyan market of meat, especially during the month of Ramadan.

All merchants can initiate export procedures, by obtaining the necessary permissions from the National Center for Animal Health in Tripoli, the Libyan embassy said.
